A Batalha do Passinho (Portuguese: "Passinho Battle", lit. "The Battle of Passinho"; English release title Passinho Dance-Off) is a 2012 Brazilian documentary film directed by Emílio Domingos. The film follows a dance known as "passinho", which emerged from the funk carioca scene, and became a viral internet sensation after a video was posted on YouTube.[not in citation given]
The style of dancing which developed in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro and is known as passinho evolved out of the funk carioca scene. After a video of a group of friends at a barbecue, Passinho Foda, received four million hits on YouTube, dancers from other communities began to upload their own home-made clips, and the dance quickly spread across Rio de Janeiro. The documentary shows the dancers and the phenomenon expanding beyond the bailes, slums and DJs.
